04/22/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Champion and I enjoyed a lovely stroll to the park, he took care of his ‘business’ right away, showed off nice leash manners, wagged his tail gently and posed like a pro for some pictures. He’s gorgeous in his gleaming orange coat, his face sweet and his eyes soft and alert. He’s easy, calm and gentle, and it’s in the backyard where he shines!! Show this boy a tennis ball and there is nothing else that matters — he’s focused, on point, can catch it on a fly and brings it back, dropping it to be thrown again. He keeps his eye on it as I pick it up, and watches my throw, poised to leap after it. He’s a superstar, and would be an amazing shortstop for the Mets or Yankees. Or, how about your home team? Champion never chews on the ball, it’s meant to be thrown and he knows it. I wish I had the day to play ball with him as he so completely enjoys it, and it was the highlight of my day. But you, lucky adopter, have the opportunity to make Champion part of your team forever and ever. Guaranteed you’ll consider it a win, and he’ll make sure of it when you bring him home. Our behavior team thinks he’ll do well in a home with average dog experience; we’ll send him home with a tennis ball or two and after that it’s up to you. He’s awesome, I adore him and you will too.

04/21/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Champion pulls a bit on the leash. He was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body. He was calm and relaxed during handling. Champion was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. He was not interested in toys. Champion did not show any concern during the behavior assessment. The behavior department feels that he can go to an Average home. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game (may need coaxing to approach.) He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Toy: 1. No interest. Playgroup Notes: When off leash with other dogs, Champion mostly keeps to himself, only briefly sniffing the helper dog.
